RE: st: comparing probit coefficients across two groups

```The thing is I still do not get how you compare coefficients across groups (i.e. female versus male). The papers generally explain how to compare across models not groups. For instance, how do we interpret the outcome of oglm estimation with heterogeneous choices? How do we compare male and female? Do we need to run two different models one with female and the other with male? Then compare the coefficients?

oglm warm yr89 female white age ed prst, het(yr89 female)

But when I read the paper titled "Using Heterogeneous Choice Models To Compare Logit and Probit Coefficients Across Groups" (Williams, 2009) do you think it also focuses on comparison of coefficients across groups?
